Winners of National Pro-Life Award Announced

 

Priests for Life

November 20, 2012

   
 

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- At the national interdenominational pro-life prayer service to be held on the 40th memorial of Roe vs. Wade, the National Pro-Life Religious Council (NPRC) will present its Pro-life Recognition Award to two outstanding pro-life warriors, Reggie Littlejohn, president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers,  and Michael Schwartz, longtime pro-life leader and strategist.


They will receive the awards on Friday, January 25 during the 19th annual National Memorial for the Pre-born and Their Mothers and Fathers, to be held in DAR Constitution Hall from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.


Father Frank Pavone, President of NPRC and National Director of Priests for Life, said the awards honor individuals who give steadfast witness to the Biblical Christian teaching on the sanctity of life.


“Michael Schwartz has been fighting for the unborn since the beginning of this battle, holding various positions both with pro-life organizations, such as the Catholic League and Concerned Women for America, and on the staff of key pro-life advocates in the federal government. He is a valued strategic thinker in our movement," Father Pavone said.


“Reggie leads an international coalition that fights human trafficking and sexual slavery around the world,” Father Pavone said. “She works to end to China’s forced abortion policy and to expose violations of women’s rights everywhere. She was the one who first brought to the attention of many pro-life leaders and other Americans the plight of Chen Guangcheng, who was imprisoned and tortured in China for his opposition to forced abortion.”


The National Memorial for the Pre-Born will occur on the morning of the March for Life, and is open to the public. DAR Constitution Hall is at 1776 D Street Northwest, Washington, D.C.


The 2013 service will commemorate 40 years since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion, and will include a memorial for Nellie Gray, who founded the March for Life in 1974 and remained its leader until her death in August of 2012.

Dear Father Pavone,

Thank you for raising the visibility of forced abortion and gendercide by recognizing my work. I am deeply grateful for and humbled by this award, which I will accept on behalf of the women and babies of China. May these atrocious practices end soon.

Reggie
